Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays that often gets over looked with all the Christmas decorations. It is the perfect time of the year to teach your family to have an attitude of gratitude. A great way to do this is with family Bible study and printable Thanksgiving devotions.

Free Printables and Bible Studies on Thankfulness and Gratitude

Printable Thanksgiving Devotions on Gratitude

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it gives us a moment to stop and ponder all of the good things that we are thankful for. Even if you have gone through hard things in the past year, there is always one single thing you can find to be thankful for.

One of the different ways that we incorporate Bible in the busy holiday season is by finding themed devotionals, Bible studies and scripture copywork to include each day.

Make sure to set aside some time each day to focus on the good things in the midst of the chaos, shopping and cooking that the holiday seasons bring. We have included lots of free resources to help you connect with your children and your whole family this busy season.

Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for a free Thanksgiving scripture and poem instant download!
